Painter/Printmaker Pamela Griffith and Sculptor/Carver Silvio Apponyi cover common ground with their inspiring works that invite you to share their love and concern for nature, flora, and fauna and the delicate position wild life holds in a world obsessed with profit, the world which often involves the exploitation of precious environments.
The Chinoiserie Cabinet is Geoff Hannah’s homage to the Chinoiserie Style of furniture design that he studied Paris and London while on his Churchill Fellowship in the 1980s and features 12 timber species, 9 stone varieties, 23 carat gold leaf gilding and a myriad of oriental hidden chambers, panels and pockets of mystery.

A young couple came across my X-Frame dining tables design on the Wood Works website and contacted me through our online enquiry form. They were seeking a custom designed dining table to complement their recently renovated house by Robert Henry Architects.
We have some great new work by local ACT wood worker Robin Cromer. One of our favourites is a two bowl set titled “Eleanor’s Oak”.
The bowls are made from a historic Pin Oak planted by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Canberra on 4th September 1942. The U.S. Embassy donated a portion of the timber to the Woodcraft Guild ACT Inc. after the tree fell during a windstorm in January 2015.
